Lessons in Entrepreneurship with Mac Anderson

Written by Don Yaeger on . Posted in Chasing Greatness Blog

Mac Anderson

Mac Anderson is an entrepreneur of the highest order.

Many of you have Anderson’s innovative work on your walls or bookshelves and you don’t even know it. Successories, one of his earliest companies, is a producer of motivational office decorations; the framed posters feature photographs that are paired with words of leadership, perseverance, and motivation. With Successories, Anderson proclaimed that he was in the positive reinforcement business. He desired to remind businesses and individuals to stay on the path of positivity in a tasteful way.

If you’re a college football fan, National Signing Day can be a media circus.

Fans are barraged with information about where the alleged “most talented” players are going.

In Remembrance of Jerry Tarkanian

The year was 1989. I had authored my first book about the NCAA and its “justice system.” The book hadn’t sold many copies, but those who had purchased it expressed hope in its message. One of the people who liked the book was Jerry Tarkanian, head coach of the University of Nevada Las Vegas men’s basketball team. He had been through a very long battle with the NCAA—considered then to be the most powerful organization in sports—over allegations that he’d cheated as a head coach.
